    We've made some major change to how the ISO:FT works, we're looking for your help and the beer trading pages are coming back.

    ISO:FT Forum
    • Due to the level of disrespectful posting ("threadshitting"), bumping and inane replying that's been occurring lately, we've now returned to a post-only format. Questions and offers can, and should, be made using private conversations.
    • Need to edit your post? You now have unlimited edits to the body of your post, but please put some thought into your subject line as you can't edit it at this time.
    • Is your trade complete? Need to abandon it? You can now self-delete your thread.
    • And as discussed in the Beer Trading General Help forum, "Likes" was recently disabled.

    Beer Trading 101
    We're also currently looking for ideas on creating a series of helpful guides and sticky posts for new traders. To help out: http://beeradvocate.com/community/threads/beer-trading-101-ideas-wanted.33821/

    Beer Trading Pages
    Many of you are probably tired of clicking on a beer's wants and gots and seeing "Trade page is currently down for updates." So are we. Our goal is to reactive these pages, which were quick lists of users who have the beer listed as a want or got, by Sun, Aug 26.

    The core goal behind all of these changes is to build a better beer trading community. We appreciate your support in helping us get there.
